AXA Research Fund – Internal EOI Call


The AXA Research Fund is looking to fund a Chair in relation to the better understanding of risk (“perceived, or yet to be perceived hazards that need identifying and addressing”). A Chair funded by the AXA Research Fund aims to create an academic full-time position to attract a researcher of international reputation, with the primary purpose to support world-leading research. Similarly to AXA’s other funding programs, the Chairs need to fall within  remits of Life, including “Ageing and Long Term Care” and “Biomedical Risks”, Environmental, including “Climate Changes” and “Human Driven Environmental Changes” or Socio-economic risks, including “Large Corporate Risks” and “Macro-economic and Financial Systemic Risks”.

This is likely to be very competitive, with the University eligible to submit just one application only. Expressions of Interest are therefore invited for internal submission. There are two stages to this process. The initial “signalling your interest” deadline, falling on the 2nd March 2015 at 17:00 which confirms your intention to submit an EOI, followed by the 9th March 2015, 17:00 deadline which requires completion and submission of the attached EOI form.

The call for Expressions of Interest for the AXA Junior Research Fellowship is now open. The mission of the AXA Research Fund is to fund basic research dedicated to a better understanding of important hazards, risks and threats and current global societal challenges within three clusters: socioeconomic risks, environmental risks and life risks. AXA intends to award a number of two-year postdoctoral fellowships worth €60,000/per annum. This will be a bottom-up scheme, with Expressions of Interest put forward, followed by an internal selection of the best candidate to be put forward on the 24th of November 2014. The nominee would then have until the 15th to submit their application outline for consideration.
